I am young and not old enough to be in college, but I loved zoology and wanted to get a headstart in it. I am very young, 13 years old. I only didn't understand the second chapter, but i am sure i will understand it when i am older. I love animals and want to be a zoologist, and this book was perfect for me. I am probably the first teenager to ever read this book, it is very scientific. Before I knew almost nothing about zoology. It is not too confusing, but requires a lot of thinking and concentration. Great college book, and my guess is that they will have this book in college, except maybe by then there would be a higher edition. Recommended for students who want to learn zoology and scholars. Overall, if you love animals and find them fascinating, and are looking for a job in zoology in your future, zoology is a great way to go. It is one of the widest fields of science and gives you many options. In zoology you specialize in one part of it, leaving animal-lovers with many options.
